Ok so my brother in law is a PC gamer but an even bigger 360 gamer, i mean he's got like 25 360 games, he adores his 360, he even admires the PS3.
However one thing he hates most on this earth is the Nintendo Wii and when he found out that i switched to the Wii....he was just disgusted.
Now his wife and my wife are sisters so we go over there house like once a week and sooner or later we make our way down stairs to the game room to play his 360, but any time i try to talk about the Wii, not only doesn't he listen, he has this smirk on his face like he's holding back enough laughter to choke a horse, not even taking the Wii seriously...either that or he'll just change the subject completley,
Infact he's still insisting that i just got the Wii because i was curious about it, and in a month or so after i play Metroid Prime 3 he thinks i'll trade it in, no matter how much i talk about the fun i'm having with the Wii.
He has gone so far as to no longer call me during the week to discuss gaming and he explains away the huge Nintendo sales as the Wii being a new fad soon to wear off .
Plus he has no desire to ever try the Wii not even once, now i know everyone's entitled to their opinion but i kind of lose respect for people who get so ignorant, snobbish and stubborn as to voice an insulting opinion about something before experiencing it first hand, but i promise you this if he ever get's the slightest bit curious and actually asks me if he can come over and check it out.
He's going to get a flat out NO, and then i'll remind him of his insulting comments about the graphics and controller and the way he yells hey were you playing your Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ? i didn't even bother to mention half of them here because we've all heard it from PS3 & 360 fanboys before,
and then i'll just tell him if he's that curious go try a demo at our local game store...and maybe next time he mentions the upcoming 360 title he's waiting for i'll just blow it off, i haven't decided yet.
Any of you guy's experience something similar ?
